Here are 10 of our favorite quotes from the Ivy League-educated lawyer and the world’s most admired author of the NY Times best-seller, Becoming.

#1 On courage

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once, but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”

#2 On negative attacks

“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”

#3 On fear:

“You can’t make decisions based on fear and the possibility of what might happen.”

#4 On challenges

“You should never view your challenges as a disadvantage. Instead, it’s important for you to understand that your experience facing and overcoming adversity is actually one of your biggest advantages.”

#5 On parenting

“With every word we utter, with every action we take, we know our kids are watching us. We as parents are their most important role models.”
